Wednesday’s Word

I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember they wonders of old (Psalm 77:11).
What do you remember? Most people remember the things, good or bad, which  greatly affect their lives. Adults often remember a particular house in which they lived as a child or maybe the sounds of the voices of their parents; others may remember gatherings of joy and gatherings of sadness; some may remember words of encouragement received or words of discouragement cast at them.
What memories do you have of God? Do you remember that He is the Creator of all things; do you remember that He is the giver of life; do you remember that He is the giver of hope? Do you remember that God is the creator of love and that because of Him, we know love? Do you remember that God is eternal and that you have been in the mind of God forever? Do you remember that God’s abode is in Heaven, but He is with us every second of every day? Do you remember that God desires to protect, shield and defend you? Do you remember that God is all knowing and therefore He knows exactly what you need? Do you remember that God knows when you are happy and when you are in sorrow? Do you remember that God cares for you? Do you remember that God wants you to live with Him, in Heaven, forever? Do you remember that God made the way possible for you to be in Heaven?
No, we were not present at the creation, but we know the One who was and that He gave man dominion over all things. No, we were not at the worldwide flood, but we know the One who sent the flood and the way of deliverance. No, we were not in the multitude which was held in captivity in Egypt, but we know the One who delivered them out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. No, we were not in the crowd gathered on Golgotha, but we know the One who payed the ransom and set us free.
Do you remember the works of the Lord?
